For five weeks in September, Stoke plays host to British Ceramics Biennial festival with an ambitious programme of exhibitions, site-specific installations, events and hands on activities. We work with international, emerging and established artists to present new ideas, new works and new forms of expression with clay which extend our understanding and appreciation of contemporary ceramics.
The current festival runs from now to 17 October 2021. It is open to the public from Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Entry is free and there is no need to book.
